Abstract:

FLEXIBLE EPOXY, MELAMINE, AND PHENOLIC RESINS WERE DEVELOPED. Some of the more promising were tested in static motor firings. Data for the best materials developed to date are tabulated. Char rates obtained in the same motor firing are reported for one of the commercially available materials, U. S. Rubber Companys 3015. Motor firings and oxyacetylene torch tests have shown several other phenolic-Syl Kem 90 formulations, a 11 modification of Epon 815 with XR2000, and a 11 modification of Epon 828 with EM206, to have good insulation properties.
